“Friendly hotel, very conveniently situated.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

First impression was a very friendly welcome at reception. Our room was not big, but we were not in London to stay in our room all the time! Bathroom was pleasant and clean but we found our shower was not as hot as we would have liked. Breakfast was a plentiful buffet including cooked food and the waiting staff were excellent: the lady in charge even remembered our preferred drink on our second day!
Being situated in Craven Terrace, there was no real traffic or other noise to disturb us.
All in all a very good value hotel and a short step from Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube station.

Room Tip: Our room looked onto the side and had a view of the park.

I stayed here for 1 night for my 2 day visit to London, the hotel was easy to find, in a great location right next to Hyde Park and the Lancaster gate tube stop, the staff were friendly, the room was nice and comfortable and the price was really good for staying in London. Only thing I wasn't keen on was the breakfast as the croissant I picked up was starting to mould so put me off eating anything else, however my boyfriend ate the fried breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it and it wouldnt put me off staying here again.

Excellent service, the guy at the front desk Dilip was very friendly and helpful. He had lots of information about the city's attractions. When we ordered a taxi for departing he even went to see our luggage to make sure it will fit on the car!!. Great location, next to hyde park and one block from Big bus hop in hop off bus!!!. I recommend this hotel.

My mother and I spent a week here. In particular, we were very impressed with the staff, especially Dilip Kumar. He went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of! He had our room cleaned upon our early arrival, helped me with my mobile phone, gave great advice about where to visit in the city and made arrangements for transportation to the airport! He did all of this with a very caring manner and a smile. We truly appreciate his kindness & wonderful service!

The hotel is in a great location. The Mitre pub right across the street was a favorite place we visited a number of times.

Our room was small but we made it work,
Would not recommend our room & shower for large people.

Bring your own hair dryer. The one in the room is hard to operate
